Atheist Clubs Invading Public Schools?
Unfortunately there is a growing trend in high school clubs that may start attracting students and leading them in the wrong direction. Secular Student Alliance is a national organization geared to college and high school clubs for atheists, humanists, freethinkers and agnostics. Some students who are attracted to these clubs refer to themselves as ‘nones’ – they have no religious affiliation whatsoever.
J.T. Eberhard, director of the high school program for Secular Student Alliance is working to expand the number of clubs in public high schools throughout the nation. At the start of the last school year, they only knew of 12 SSA clubs, but that number rose to 39 by the end of the school year and they have requests for starter kits for 73 more clubs that they are working on.
